Steffanic reported an in- crease of 1,225 in paid atten- dance over 2010. The system also reflected a huge de- crease in unpaid attendance. Steffanic said this year's numbered tickets and wrist- bands were far more accurate than the notoriously unreli- able mechanical clicker used in prior years. Overall, total fair revenue was down slightly over 2010, which Steffanic attributed to several factors. Early last year, fair directors decided to eliminate junior exhibitor fees. In addition, delays in putting presale tickets on sale, fewer food vendors and the 2-for-1 carnival ride' deal Wednesday all contributed to less revenue. See accom- panying chart for revenue details. District 1 Supervisor Terry Swofford wanted to quash any rumors about cancella- tion of the 2012 fair. He'd spoken to vendors con- cerned about next year's fair. Directors reported fielding similar questions. Steffanic said he had re- ceived only positive feed- back from fairgoers. The majority of the regu- lar board meeting centered on the tentative 2011-12 bud- get Steffanic submitted to Chief Administrative Offi- cer Jack Ingstad.
